Welcome to the official website for the Equity Release Summit

The one-day Summit is the landmark equity release event in the industry’s calendar, growing and developing year-on-year in terms of impact, recognition, profile and credibility. In addition to keynote addresses by senior politicians and sector leaders, it features core plenary sessions focusing on broad issues of interest to members and the wider sector. There's also interactive, panel-based, subject-specific parallel sessions.

The Summit followed the 2019 member survey in which a third of respondents (32%) said they would like an opportunity to take part in or support/sponsor Council activities. The event provides an excellent opportunity to do both.
